Nose surgery: Nosewing Reduction
Today we are talking about
nosewing reduction, one of surgical methods of nose surgery.
There are two kinds of nosewing reduction,
such as alar base reduction and nostril fastening.
Alar Base Reduction
Wide nosewing is often a result of
excessive skin or subcutaneous tissues.
Alar base reduction involves excision of excessive skin at the base of nosewing,
which reduces the size of nostrils.
Excision scars, formed between the nostrils and cheeks,
are nearly invisible after 2~3 months.
Nostrils that are wide at the bottom can be tightened with sutures
after shallow resection has been made around the alar base.
Scars are formed between the bottom of nose and philtrum,
making it difficult to notice under the nose shadow.
